India is a country for spice lovers and so we have mostly been a fan of every cuisine that offers a burst of flavours in a dish. Chinese, for instance is one, which we loved so much that we have given it our own tadka and made it our own as the Indo-Chinese cuisine. But did we stop there? Nope. We are also drooling over the middle eastern cuisine off late, which offers a gamut of variety and flavours across its delicacies. Shawarma rolls, a Lebanese snack has been making foodies in India weak in their knees for a long time now. It is essentially a pita breadroll with partially minced meat chunks, veggies and mayonnaise, and is served with chutney. The thick and succulent filling of meat chunks has non-vegetarians slurping and the spices of the minced meat are what makes it unique. The combination of all of this with creamy mayo is heavenly experience you just can’t resist.
While you can find shawarma rolls everywhere from streets side carts to and tuck shops to middle eastern restaurants, did you know you could easily make it at home too?
